250 delicious vegetarian recipes plus information on the health benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.

We choose a vegetarian lifestyle for various reasons, and perhaps one of the most significant is that a plant-based diet is healthful. Many current studies show that the fiber, minerals and other nutrients found in such foods play an important role in preventing disease.

This cookbook offers up a vegetarian diet that is rich, varied, healthful and delicious. The recipes call for an interesting range of food choices and are often both budget friendly and spontaneous.

In The Vegetarian Cook''s Bible, good taste and good health go hand in hand. For example:

  • Warm mushrooms with goat cheese is a recipe that ties in with research showing how shiitake mushrooms bolster the immune system.
  • The author explains that cruciferous vegetables protect against colon cancer-and provides a recipe for a hearty stuffed braised cabbage with potatoes.
  • A special section addresses seven body systems and suggests prescriptive meals and beneficial dietary and lifestyle changes.

In The Vegetarian Cook''s Bible, imaginative recipes and comprehensive, up-to-date information highlight the benefits of vegetarian cooking.

Read from the Book

Introduction More than anything else, our way of eating dictates our ability to resist disease and enjoy good health. Studies on the traditional diets of Asians, Mediterranean people, Pima Indians in Arizona, and other aboriginal societies all confirm that their rates of modern diseases are significantly lower as long as they maintain their traditional diet, which typically includes a wide range of plants and is low in red meats and fats. It is well known now that as stress increases in our lives, our immunity decreases. An even more disturbing fact is that as our lives become more pressured, our ways of nourishing ourselves usually become more reliant upon fast, unnatural foods foods that offer no help in building up our immune responses. In fact, as life gets more complicated, we often suffer a double whammy -- high stress and poor nutrition -- and consequently, a downward spiral into poor health. This book speaks to balance and harmony -- the attitudes and practices that keep humans whole in body, spirit and mind. And it is no coincidence that many of the recipes have an Asian flavor because with its focus on the whole body in general, and the immune system in particular, the Oriental approach to food and health is a practical, non-invasive way of prevention through the yin-yang principle. Indeed, the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung (circa 2300 BC), believed to be responsible for the yin-yang theory, advocated the use of food, plants and herbs as medicine. There are many differe

Editorial Reviews

In this book, the first 55 pages deal with healthy living, the cardiovascular-, digestive-, endocrine-, immune-, musculovascular-, nervous- and respiratory systems. Everything is explained in sufficient detail for almost anyone to understand. Then the author goes on to outline the importance of fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, sea vegetables, soy foods, and herbs. A whole chapter is devoted to appetizers, dips, and spreads, all of which can be prepared in a short time, with ease. All told, there are 30 delectable recipes. Scrumptious salad and soup recipes follow the appetizer chapter, where the vegetable stock recipe comes in particularly handy for those who like to prepare and enjoy soups. Some of the main dishes are selected specially for vegans, who must plan in order to obtain sufficient amounts of protein from nuts and legumes. If you happen to like desserts to finish your meal, you will be happy to find several recipes that can be prepared in advance and stored for a few days i.e poached pears with apricot-ginger sauce, apple-cranberry compote, fruited bread pudding, brandied custard and many more. A brief glossary completes this excellent, richly illustrated and informative book. Even if you are not a vegetarian you can learn a great deal from this book. Highly recommended!
